Newport Shores Community Info –
Newport Shores is located along the southeast shores of Lake Washington, west of I-405, in the city of Bellevue. The neighborhood is built around a series of man-made inlets, with homes oriented toward waterfront, boating and lake activities situated on approximately 172 acres with nearly 400 homes — over 100 which are lakefront, or man-made canal waterfront. The wide winding streets Newport Shores are perfect for biking, rollerblading and walking. The Lake Washington bike trail is easily accessible to the neighborhood, giving residents convenient bike access to Newcastle Beach Park and Mercer Slough Park.
Neighborhood amenities include the Newport Shores Yacht Club and Marina. Since 2005, any purchaser of a Newport Shores home is required to become an active member of the Newport Yacht Club, and maintain their active status while owning the home. The clubhouse offers a variety of activities, competitive teams, and social events for members of all ages. Facilities include outdoor tennis courts, a heated outdoor 25-yard, 5-lane swimming pool, sand volleyball court, children’s play area and basketball area. The Newport Shores Yacht Club marina contains 119 slips, ranging in length from 26 to 60 feet. All docks in the marina have 30-amp power, water and gated access. Nearby, the Newport Hills and Lake Heights neighborhoods reside just east of Interstate 405, between Coal Creek and Lake Washington. Both neighborhoods enjoy a strong sense of community with long-standing, active neighborhood associations. The Newport Hills Community Park is a popular local park.
